    I have followed the recipe, and even the used frozen cubes of half and half. The result was a nice ready-ro-eat ice cream, but it turned hard like a rock after night in the freezer. Is there a better way to store the ice cream?

    I just bought my blendtec this morning and this is the first recipe I tried with it. Wow! So impressed that my BLENDER can do this! Creamy, flavorful and easy to adapt. This has become an instant family favorite! The only thing I did differently was add a few chocolate chips toward the end of the blend.

    This recipe came just in time. I had been trying to make just plain vanilla ice cream but it never worked because I wasn’t using anything frozen. It always came out like a milk shake, delicious, just not ice cream. Your solution was so obvious once I read the e-mail updates! Came out delicious! I did it again and added some frozen dark sweet cherries and it makes to most delicious cherry vanilla ice cream.
